BUILDERS OF THE NATION

By: MOUSUMI BISWAS


While  lauding the frontliners 
Don't forget the teachers  working behind the screens  
Making children sit in the  class maintaining a decorum
When you can't even engross  them in a game of ludo for long
Teaching students to listen , speak, read and write
Guiding them from darkness to light
Encouraging them to think , wonder , explore and question
Inculcating values of discipline, honesty,hard work and determination
 Teachers are the real builders of the nation
Teaching is the one  profession that creates  technology and other professions   
 Teachers are like candles

Burning themselves to guide their students .
